Makarska riviera, Croatia – excursions and nearby destinations

 

The geographical position of Makarska and its riviera enables visitors to go on excursions to various natural, cultural and other locations as well as coastal settlements and towns, Zagora and islands of Brac, Hvar and Korcula. Among numerous attractive locations we recommend you visit:

The Bacina lakes (Bacinska jezera) – a cluster of lakes in the vicinity of Ploce that represent one of the most interesting manifestations in the karst hydrography. More information on these lakes you can find here or you can take a look at the video...

 
 

Biokovo Nature Park – a real richness of culture and natural heritage accompanied by a botanical garden. More on the park you can see here or you can see a video...

 
 

Dubrovnik – a unique Adriatic pearl located approx. 165 km away from Makarska

Imotski – the two lakes Modro and Crveno, which are of world value, are situated in the area. The first, Modro jezero, is the favourite swimming spot of the inhabitants but what is interesting is that its depth is not constant so in the fall it dries out and the traditional soccer tournaments are played at its bottom. Crveno jezero on the other hand is a true natural phenomenon because of the shore in red colour and not even today can the depth of this lake be determined...

 
 

Suplja istina or Biokovsko oko (The eye of Biokovo or Hollow cliff) – is located on top of Biokovo above the Brela settlement. It is a natural phenomenon with a wonderful view on Brela in the shape of an enormous eye.
